Maharashtra: Tiger to get Prosthetic Limb

In what may be the first instance of it, a tiger in Maharashtra will be getting a prosthetic limb, with the joint efforts of Maharashtra Animal and Fisheries Science University (MAFSU) and an orthopaedic surgeon of Nagpur.

The veterinary doctors of Maharashtra Animal and Fisheries Science University (MAFSU) and orthopaedic surgeon, Dr Sushrut Babhulkar have joined hands for surgically attaching prosthesis in a male tiger at Nagpur’s Gorewada Rescue Centre.

While such a surgery has been done on some of the animals across the world, it is possibly the first time that a tiger will undergo it.
